When we drove up to The Louise I thought, "oh oh, I've made a mistake." The low profile buildings look -- well -- uninviting. At bit like a school or worse.
But inside the rooms are a delightful surprise. There were four of us -- with two adjacent rooms -- so the gate separating the two private front gardens had been opened.
The rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, and we all spent an enjoyable hour or so watching the afternoon sun move across the vineyards right outside our back porch.
In the morning I had a shower in the private, outside shower (reminded me of the hunting lodge we'd visited in the Kruger in South Africa). The four of us then shared our room service continental breakfast in our own garden.
Other reviewers said that they found The Louise somewhat cold and lacking in character, and I can certainly see what they mean. But we found it a clean and bright oasis for our one night stay in the Barossa Valley.
